You love making music and performing! The business side of things? Not so much. Let’s face it, starting or growing your music career can be extremely daunting.  I've been booking, promoting, and managing bands and solo artists for the past 16 years and I've been performing for 10.

There’s so much more to it than getting gigs and it goes way beyond just having talent. You need to have a solid work ethic and you need to know how the music business works. If you’re a singer or a musician, read on!

I created a video training course called The Musicians' Success Formula to help you navigate your music career and move forward FAST!

This 6-week program is like Music Biz 101! It’s jam-packed with valuable content, plus you get bonuses AND added support! You can't get that from a book or from doing random web searches! Plus, will you really read all that stuff - and apply it? You'll not only gain valuable training but you'll be helping out a good cause!

Every program purchased will help send a disadvantaged youth to an entrepreneurship camp in the Raleigh/Durham area! Yes, you read that correctly! It's a win/win!

How I started

What started out with booking and managing talented teen bands turned into a company through which I have booked over 900 bands and many solo artists. In the past 16 years, I have organized, booked, and managed hundreds of shows and large concerts that have launched many music careers. I learned that most serious musicians have major skills but no one to represent them whom they can truly trust. I applied my many years of sales and marketing experience, my MBA, and my passion for music and built a highly successful entertainment business called Next Stage Entertainment, which is now part of Rock the Next Stage.

In addition to being a best-selling author, I'm the host of Rock the Next Stage with Dori Staehle on Blog Talk Radio. ​

For the first time, I am making the secrets that I have taught bands and solo artists privately available to you!  

  • Learn more about the music business
  • Learn how to market and brand yourself effectively
  • Gain insight into how the booking process works
  • Create multiple streams of income
  • Gain confidence and a strong mindset for success
  • Learn to focus, manage your time better – and hit your goals!
  • Stop working for free or next to nothing!
  • Maintain momentum and have staying power!
